News has come in that Nick Walker’s got a book coming out towards the end of next month, a retrospective kind of thing covering images of his work for the last 10 years or so. Apparently Mr Walker’s been recreating images from the past to go into it, and the whole thing’s going to be launched at Black Rat Press in London on the 28th of May 2009.
There’s going to be a book signing on that night by the man himself, and the images recreated for the book are going to be up for sale on the night too.
Even more impressively, the whole thing’s being promoted with one of the cheesiest, nausiating and most money oriented press releases this blog’s ever seen. Here’s as much as we could bare to blog…
Many events happen within the world of urban art, but every year a tremor flows through the market when Nick Walker makes work available…Nick’s solo show in May will generate interest on a global scale and the popularity of his artistic talent was reflected at his last solo show which saw enthusiasts queue for over 36 hours and sales of $1.5m. At a recent print release at the London Art Fair organisers had to recruit additional staff to handle the influx of prospective buyers.
Nick Walker: More than a commercial asset, honest.
